No. 58.

New Orleans, August 14, 1862.

In compliance with the orders of the War Department, dated July 31, 1862, it is hereby ordered, that the Commanding Officers of the several Brigades, Regiments and Corps within this Department, shall, on Monday, the 18th day of August current, cause each Regiment and Corps under their command to be mustered.

The absentees will be marked, three lists of the same made out, and within forty-eight hours of the muster, one copy will be sent to the Adjutant General of the Army, and one to the Commanders of the Corps. The third is to be retained, and all officers and privates fit for duty, absent at that time, will be regarded as absent without cause. Their pay will be stopped, and they will be dismissed from the service, or treated as deserters, unless restored ; and no officer shall be restored to his rank, unless by the judgment of a Court of Inquiry, to be approved by the President, he shall establish his innocence of the charge, that his absence was without cause."

BY COMMAND OF MAJOR GENERAL BUTLER :

ORDERED, That after Tuesday, 19th inst., there be paid for information leading to the discovery of weapons not held under a written permit from the United States authorities, but retained and concealed by the keepers thereof, the sums following: For each serviceable Gun, Musket or Rifle,

$10
Revolver,

7
Pistol,
Sabre or Officer's Sword,

5
Dirk, Dagger, Bowie-knife or Sword-cane,

3 Said arms to be confiscated, and the keeper so concealing them to be punished by imprisonment.

This crime being an overt act of rebellion against the authority of the United States, whether by a citizen or an alien, works a forfeiture of the property of the offender, and, therefore, every slave giving information that shall discover the concealed arms of his or her master, shall be held to be emancipated.

II. As the United States authorities have disarmed the inhabitants of the Parish of New Orleans, and as some fearful citizens seem to think it necessary that they should have arms to protect themselves from violence, it is ordered,

That hereafter, the offenses of robbery by violence or aggravated assault that ought to be repelled by the use of deadly weapons, burglaries, rapes and murders, whether committed by blacks or whites, will be, on conviction, punished by death.

BY COMMAND OF MAJOR GENERAL BUTLER :

R. S. DAVIS,
Captain and Acting Assistant Adjutant General.
